Unconventional Jewelry Inspiration

Trends come and they go – and as jewelry designers we’re constantly toe-ing the line of originality and wanting to stay current.

With so much happening in the fashion world due to NYFW, we love seeing designers push the boundaries. One of those designers we’re digging right now is Sarah & Sebastian, and their bisecting face jewelry they made for the Dion Lee presentation at NYFW. While not exactly wearable in an every day sense, they serve up some sweet inspiration for new and unconventional designs. Check her out below:

Each piece is hand molded to fit the model’s face, and it’s held in place by tension, i.e. don’t try to eat, talk or otherwise open your mouth when wearing… Ahhh the lengths we go for fashion!
